    Just walk around town and key up a few times. Wait one hour. If no sound of helos in distance approaching or whooshing sound from sky is heard, you “should” be okay.

    Yes, it's totally harder to learn when you get older. At least that's what my friends tell me.

    I ended up just using a 40 amp relay that cuts power to my Rig Runner when the ignition is off. Seems to be working just fine and a 5 pack of them was less than $20 on Amazon. I could see some applications for the APO3 but not sure my radio is one of them.

    You guys are the friggin devil. Not two weeks ago I saw this damn thread and now I have my first handheld. Going to go get my technicians license in about a week and a half. It all started with, “what if my wife can’t get cell service and needs help while out walking the dog on one of her many hikes?“

    Thank for all the great info on a serious note.

    We all got together on a certain band and said “let’s get this guy right in the wallet.”

    But my friends call me EZDog.

    I like dragging this around if I need max. distance but it can be tricky to find a decent place too park it too!

    Anybody pop a 3/4" hole to put a NMO mount on a Tundra with a sunroof? I'm kinda half shopping for a new Tundra and want to upgrade to a Platinum and everyone I've seen has the sunroof.

    Finally got my setup all installed.
    I mounted mine on the hood and the radio works great. I've got a 2010.
